More good news for the county town

More good news for Stafford this time round with plans being approved for the new Stafford Western Access Route and another milestone achieved at the new Redhill Industrial Park.

Plans for the new Stafford Western Access Route which will help cut congestion and support new homes and growth in the town got the Green light from planners earlier in the month.  Stafford has seen significant development over the last few years which is helping to secure the town’s future prosperity and keeping it attractive to potential investors.  But, we all know how congested the town centre can be at certain times and with more development planned, it’s vital that we act now.

The project is being backed by the Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Local Enterprise Partnership and is being funded through the Government’s Growth Deal.  The new road will help ease congestion on the Newport Road east of Kingsway, Station Road, Chell Road, Gaol Square and the A34 Foregate Street south of the scheme.  Work on the first section could start as early as summer or autumn 2016 and I will keep readers updated on progress.

Keeping with Stafford, Trebor Developments, working with US firm Rockspring also had its plans for a new industrial development on the Redhill site approved with construction able to start in the new year.  The fact that the site is almost fully occupied, and with just two plots left, is great news for Staffordshire.  This brings added confidence to potential investors and is further evidence that companies are wanting to invest and do their business here in Staffordshire.
